Umar Ibrahim, who briefed the governor on the attacks, said in addition to the 24 people abducted, three persons were killed by the insurgents during separate attacks on the three communities.

Zulum directed that an assessment report containing all damages caused by the insurgents in the three communities be submitted to him.

He also commended the chairman for his responsive leadership.

“Let me specifically commend the efforts of the local government chairman, because despite the very limited resources, he has been doing his best to ensure that dividends of democracy are provided in Chibok,” he said.

The governor said about four LGAs of Biu, Askira, Chibok and Damboa have faced serial attacks from the insurgents in recent times.
